According to Coates and Wade (2004) attributing the assault to a psychological disorder to naturalize his behaviour. However, this testimony leads to the idea that it is okay to rape young girls to help men get over the sexual anxiety issues. His responses do not indicate the details of the events on hand, nor the girls’ reactions to the assault. He also conceals his violence by using the word “vice”. On two occasions he said that he uses “sex as a vice” and “loved sex because of the vice at the time”.
Rape and sexual assault does not only occur in the ancient times of The Scarlet Letter but is extremely prevalent in today’s society and is normalized through the depiction of rape culture presented in the media. In today’s society, it is imperative to address the rape culture that is being cultivated by the objectification of women, normalization of violence against them, and the recurring victimization of the victim because it leaves men confused in their relationships with women and women feeling disempowered and violated. One of the initial causes of rape culture is the way in which women are being objectified by men and the media as it creates a society that disregards women’s rights and safety. From a very young age, men are encouraged to believe that all women are property because of the media. In magazine advertisements, it has been tested that sexual objectification occurs more frequently for women than for men and that women are 3 times more likely to be dressed in a sexually provocative manner.
Using sex icons and idols generates a disconnect in a society that should be close and immediate with each other. Often during an advertisement, deception is present, with the main goal to foster pornography. When using pornography, male dominance is supreme, while women are used for seduction and beauty for the essential aid for a product. This erotic charm results in disappointment, because it can
To profess their heterosexual identity, boys enact the ritual of performative sex talk. With a profusion of sexual bravado, boys fight to one-up each other in their stories of sexual prominence and prosperity. Pascoe states that “expressing heterosexual desire establishes a sort of baseline masculinity” (87), in part to distance themselves from the feminine identity of a “fag,” but also to establish masculine dominance. These discussions center around how these boys are able to enact their subjectivity and control on the world around them, with women as the objects of their control and puppets of their desires. Furthermore, the masculine dominance is established through compulsive heterosexuality when boys engage in specific patterns of opposite-sex touching.
Make money differences that can also be similarities found in Jamaica Kincaid story ‘’Girl’’ and in Anna Quindlen story ‘‘Between The Sexes A Great Divide’ ’For example, a similarity between these two amazing authors is that they 're both written in a woman 's point of view and talk about how woman and man are a bully in their relationship.

Jamaica Kincaid writes, ‘’this is how to bully a man; this is how a man bullies you; this is how to love a man; and if this doesn 't work there are other ways’’ (Kincaid page 1) This shows that a woman point of view on can be similar because both authors talk about how a man bullies woman and how woman bullies a man. In ‘’Between The Sexes A Great Divide’’ by Anna Quindlen talks about A look or a sign about how both genders think that women or men could be weird or considered strange. Jamaica Kincaid writes ‘’.
We see the feminist theory in the documentary when the managers or supervisors sexually abuse of their workers. They take the advantage of them being stronger and being in a higher position to manipulate their workers. So, they force them to have sex and afterward they laugh at them because they won’t listen to them and won’t believe them. Which in some of the cases they believe it and don’t report it at the moment and when they report it to the police and to the company it’s too hard to get evidence. Like in the case of one of the janitors, she reported what happened to her too
This form of objectification is often used as a means to appeal to men's sexual desires in order to promote and attract consumers, because marketers still latch onto the old “sex sells”, or so it would seem (Rowland, 2016). Music videos, magazines, fashion commercials, are all channels through which women are exploited and put out to be headless objects isolated for their bodies solely for sexual pleasure and viewing purposes. Rowland explains that although this charade may allure and trap most men, this is not the case for women. Emma Rooney cites in The Effects of Sexual Objectification on Women's Mental Health, “the sexual objectification of women is a driving and perpetuating component of gender oppression, systemic sexism, sexual harassment, and violence against women”. Jessica Vanlenti writes in ‘Worldwide sexism…Women’, that researchers from The University of Missouri-Kanas and Georgia State found these forms of objectification to be linked to women’s psychological distress, and are leading causes of suicide among young adolescent women.
After reading and analyzing the article, "Love, Sex, Relationships and the Brain", the most significant factor between male and female roles in relationships is based on personalities. Females are known to be more clingy and in need of the reassurance from their partner. Males on the other hand lack or can do without the feelings and emotional aspects.

The marketing tone can be inferred through the picture of the imprints on the women’s back. The picture is attempting to convince men that they can expect those result if they use the Axe deodorant. Many young men fall victim to the obstacle to critical thinking of Conformism after viewing the advertisements due to the desire to fit in and be wanted by attractive women. Conformism is a “result from the desire to be a part of something outside yourself. It is the tendency to follow the crowd or to try and fit in with them by any means necessary.” (Components of Critical Thinking, module 2 page 10).
Amid the rise of sexual harassment, assault, and rape accusations in current media, versing oneself in appropriate behavior is vitally important, particularly when attempting to engage another party romantically. Many men and women are asking themselves, “When does flirtation become sexual harassment?”. Asking oneself these questions and remaining introspective of one’s behavior towards others is imperative to the protection of the well-being of those around oneself. As such, it is vitally important to understand what the lines between flirting, sexual harassment, and sexual aggression are and how best to avoid crossing from one into the next.
